Maersk joins WTO trade alliance

Maersk has joined the Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation, which was launched by the World Trade Organisation earlier this year as a public-private partnership to support the implementation of the Trade Facilitation Agreement.

The alliance also includes the International Chamber of Commerce, the World Economic Forum as well as companies such as DHL and Wal-Mart.

“When fully implemented, the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement will represent an important step toward minimising supply chain barriers and reinvigorating global trade,” said Nils S Andersen, Maersk Group CEO.

“By joining the alliance with governments and partners, the Maersk Group will use its local expertise to support the implementation and stimulate local growth.”
